Learning from the context in Human – AI Robot teaching
Maria Bot work as a teaching assistant is not based on that she is programmed with pre-determined answers, but instead, she learns and answers out of the context. This makes the interaction with students very real as she is monitoring a human from the shoulders up, has complex facial expressions, head movements and “eyes” capable of recognizing emotional cues. From this basis, she can engage in discussions among several different subjects. Where she collects data in order to make her own decisions and give her own answers. Maria Bot has been trained by Professor Barry first on ethics and then on personality.
August 15, 2020, Professor Barry and Maria Bot received the World Greatness Award at a ceremony in London.

Learning is a challenge. To design a workable learning experience is even more challenging. It is like moving art with a well-defined purpose and goals. This book is intended to work as a practical guide to improve the prospects for you to succeed in your learning design project.
